National Integrity Framework - Parent's / Guardians

Being involved in the sport of gymnastics is as rewarding as it is inspiring.

As a parent or carer of a child or young person, it is natural to expect your child to experience a gymnastics environment that is safe, supportive and inclusive.

The following resources and fact sheets have been developed by either Gymnastics Australia or Sport Integrity Australia to support you understand the expected behaviours of everyone involved in gymnastics in Australia.

Should you develop a concern about your child’s involvement in gymnastics, there are people you can talk to. Some concerns about occurrences that happen on the gym floor, such as misunderstandings, can often be solved momentarily with a brief discussion with your child’s coach. More severe concerns, or complaints, are those that affect your child’s learning or wellbeing, which may include safety, racism or bullying.
